ďIf I have a one four-member American band at the Palomino, Iím looking at $1,700 Canadian just to get them on the bill ó and thatís on top of paying out a sound tech, paying for posters, gear rental, paying the other bands, staffing,Ē Brown says, explaining there have been tweaks to the LMO in the past, but nothing this drastic or, in his eyes, damaging.
Just so everyone knows, we have a merch button at the top of our page that is a listing of all our OFFICIAL merch stores. Please donít bother buying from anywhere else as it does not in any way filter through to us, nor do we have control over the quality of the product.
Also, I know our fans are smart enough to know that if there is a new release coming out that we havenít advertised, then we obviously have nothing to do with it and again it is only profiting some third party that has no association with the band. Weíd be more than happy if you just...
Hayley Williams of Paramore spoke yesterday with Coop and Gillian of AMP Radio 98.7 about Miley Cyrus' VMA performance. Now, this might just be the ugliest radio website of all time -- but if you can fight through it, you can stream the conversation (or just jump here). Hayley talks about how the performance made her uncomfortable and how she didn't like how it appeared that Miley was "using black girls as accessories."

Today's Behind The Bits is a bit of a departure, because I'm releasing it as an audio interview! I also did not plan on releasing it as an audio interview at first, which is why I paid no mind to the audio quality as I was recording it. So yes, I know it does not sound great, but can we move on? My talk with former UCB Artistic Director and Comedy Bang! Bang! head writer Neil Campbell is great otherwise, so head over to my blog and focus on the positives. Fear not, though, all the kinks were sufficiently worked out in time for my talk with next week's guest, Kumail Nanjiani.
